King and Kermit!

Today, in the United States, it is Martin Luthur King, Jr. Day.

Here, in Canada, it’s just…Monday.

Now, that just doesn’t seem right, but we’ll leave that discussion for another day.

Alright…it’s a discussion for today.

However, if you’re looking for some really deep, profound, reflective insight into human rights and equality well…then you’ve entered the wrong mind.

But, if you’re looking for someone to find a connection between Martin Luthur King Jr. and Kermit the Frog…BINGO!

On August 28, 1963 Mr. King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and addressed a crowd of over 200,000 people with his, now famous, speech “I have a dream”.

Six years later, during the first season of Sesame Street, Kermit the Frog sat on a tree stump and addressed close to 7-million children with his, equally famous, song “Bein' Green”.

King and Kermit.

Two very different individuals.

Two very different audiences.

Two very different presentations.

ONE very similar message:

We’re all different, but we’re all special!

So, let's have unity in spite of diversity.

My Canadian brothers and sisters,
Today is no longer “just” Monday. I now proclaim, in Canada, January the 18th to be "Kermit the Frog Day"!

Have a good one,

Today’s blog was brought to you by the letter K and the number 1.
